Found this fabric a couple years ago to make a quilt for my yet-to-be-completed teardrop trailer. Made coordinating plaid pillowcases as well. Then had a friend with a longarm quilting machine do the quilting.

Cute fabrics, Lil! Nice choice of colours. Great idea--matching pillowcases! I can just imagine cozy ones in flannel, especially in the spring/fall!

Thanks Gloria! I used the magic tube method to make the pillowcases. It was fun.

Trailer Quilt Block

Just came across this cute Trailer quilt block, from Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks from Today's Designers. Vol. 8

Someone pointed out that the door was on the wrong side, but you could easily reverse it.

[you could say it's actually a teardrop camper, many of them, but not ours, have a door on both sides

The axle is way back to the rear as tear drops have.
Still a nice quilt block.

Daughter and I have started playing with embroidery and cross-stitch.
Thinking about making my own block with the Snoozy as the star.
How hard can it be to draw a bullet?.......lol

I love this "thread" (pardon the pun). Let's keep it going! Keep sending your great "glamping" ideas.

Carol wrote earlier that she wished she had a way to "waterproof" her curtains as our trailers are prone to indoor moisture retention. Actually, if you simply spray Scothgard on the fabric it will do a good job.

Quiltgirl, I LOVE the quilted trailer motif! Thanks for sharing.

My turn

Curtains, including closeup. Pillows. Not threads but woods, cabinet doors.

I found that using a light thermal lining which has a bit of a plastic coating on it helps a lot in prevent the curtains from soaking up moisture from the windows and helps with blocking light. If you sew a few earth magnets into the bottom of the curtains they will cling to the bottom of the window frame when closed eliminating the gap between the window and the curtains, reducing the cold air draft down onto your head when winter camping.

Very nicely done, Bryon. The modifs look especially appropriate for a man's camper. I like it!

That is a great idea!

Looks great!

Are the doors decoupaged with something?
